We’re really excited to invite you to the first public performance using Rodrigo Constanzo’s new networked improvisation system, dfscore.

The dfscore system is a dynamic score display system built to function over a local network to display a variety of musical material. The primary motivations for building the system were to allow for a middle ground between composition and improvisation and to be able to dynamically restructure and reorchestrate material on any given instrumentation.

The dfscore system enables groups of any size to collectively improvise without a conductor while still retaining moments of synchronicity. Each performer’s laptop, connected to a central router, displays information that is only relevant to them: melodic or rhythmic fragments, accompanying tempo and count in, role to assume.

The performance at The Noise Upstairs will feature music composed by Rodrigo and Sam Andreae (Efpi) and will be performed by Sam Andreae (sax), Richard Craig (flute), Rodrigo Constanzo (drums), Anton Hunter (guitar), Alex Harker (guitar), Linda Jankowska (violin) and Pierre Alexandre Tremblay (bass guitar).
